The San Diego Race Relations Society sought to end prejudice against racial, national, and religious groups. This group was instrumental in pushing for desegregation in public spaces, as well as in challenging the denial of jobs because of religion, race, or color. Dennis Allen served as president of the Race Relations Society and helped expand employment opportunities for San Diego’s Black community.
